4/5

This wine is made with priooratinas historical varieties Garnacha, Carignan, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Carignan Grenache and comes from old vines between 35 and 60 years licorella planted on terraces between 500 and 800 meters. The harvest is manual. vineyards located in different terraces are chosen and this allows a wealth of nuances once vinified separately all varieties in the cellar. All the grapes go through the selection table. After the alcoholic fermentation, the wine went to barrel where malolactic fermentation took place. Aging in selected French oak barrels mostly all new and single use. Then made a bottle aging a year. This wine will evolve favorably over the next 7-10 years when stored under appropriate conditions.

Bright cherry colour, high layer. Toasty and tobacco aromas. Very light and complex.
The best one to enjoy it with a good serrano ham.
I celebrated a special occasion with Scala Dei Prior and my partner.

Me and my clients from Priorat have taste it together.
Red with violet edges. Toffee notes can be appreciated. It improved with a little more coldness.
It pairs good with a strong flavoured fish.
